David Green believes that generosity and building a legacy based on giving can lead to getting back what you really want: a family that stays together, prays together, and shares life joyfully.

Green tells the story of caring for the small things and starting Hobby Lobby in their garage. He shares the difference between the worlds of “having and hoarding” and a world of “giving and generosity,” the principle of working for God and not for men, and that now is not too soon to consider what you want your legacy to be.

As proof of how living by those principles can change your life, Green shares that when Hobby Lobby came close to bankruptcy in 1986 and when the Supreme Court challenged the Hobby Lobby’s right to life beliefs in 2014, the company emerged with its integrity intact. 

Green sees the life of giving as a life of adventure. But it’s a life that pays the best rewards personally, offers a powerful legacy to your family, and changes those you touch.

Mr. Green reminds us that we are only stewards of what God has provided and that looking to God’s will and wisdom in giving is the correct and proper thing to do.In looking at giving to others, the book provides excellent…

This is an excellent book I am so impressed with David Green’s desire to serve God and to teach his family to do so as well. He seems to truly have a servant’s heart and a desire to give to those who will benefit the most. I am taking in everything he is saying and looking at it from a Biblical perspective. I have always been a giver. I love to give. But, I have to admit that I have never put giving into such a structured perspective before. I give of my tithes and offerings in a structured manner, but have never…
